Cabbage Sesame Slaw (Dairy Free)

This salad is fresh and unassuming and is easy to adapt to bigger or smaller groups. It has a nice, warm sesame flavour and lots of great textures, and is dairy free. It’s a great potluck dish. This salad comes from my mother in law – my addition is the carrots – and we served this salad at our wedding because I love it that much. It goes nice with barbequed steaks.


Like all my recipes, T is tablespoon and t is teaspoon.
